Here’s a recently finished commissioned work. It’s an open-top carry-all in 8 oz. oak-tanned leather with nickel furniture. The bag as a snap closure on the top and a snap closing security pocket for wallet, phone, keys, etc. Overall dimensions are 16 x 12 x 5″ (41 x 30 x 12.5 cm) for about 15 litres of volume.
The new owner wanted simplicity in a general purpose shoulder bag that would stand up on it’s own. After some mock ups we arrived at the desired dimensions and specific features for the bag which include a removable shoulder strap for travel and a secure external pocket.
On a similar theme, here’s the post about the haversack I made for myself a little while back:
